My tactics

I’m using 4-1-2-1-2 formation again especially on away games and stronger opponent teams like Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, etc. I managed to beat Chelsea both home (2-0) and away (1-0) games with this formation. I also played 4-4-2 formation when I’m at home and against weaker team.

Next season preparation

I’m off to prepare my team for next season in English Premier League (EPL) as Barnet Manager for the next season. I may need to loan and transfer several players to prepare my season as usual. I’ll again compete in UEFA Cup.
